It takes her 5 minutes to say "Yes, I stole the baby", while a slow plinky plunk guitar plays. Then they tell you she was under acute mental strain. Duh.
Watching this might cause YOU acute mental strain.

"and was found to be under an acute mental strain"
I love these episodes that deal with unstereotypical and/or unlikely cases. In this one, one of a set of twin babies disappears from a hospital. Friday and Jacobs first find out how it could have happened and then where it (he) went to.
One warning: The sound is extremely loud. Turn your volume down all the way and then inch it up or you'll probably get a noise complaint!
